Tips For Quarry Tile Cleaning And Sealing

Quarry Tiles are an unglazed ceramic material and are very absorbent so it is important to clean them and seal them regularly.

Below is our quarry tile cleaning process:

1- We inspect your floor: This is to identify any limitations like stain removal, loss of loose grout surrounding surfaces sensitive to cleaning solutions and any other areas that needs consideration before the cleaning starts

2- We protect your walls and furniture: This is to limit over spray on to sensitive areas during the cleaning process. Please note no guarantee can be made that materials that is extremely sensitive to moisture might not show some form of exposure to our cleaning solutions.

3- Dry soil removal: we will remove any dry soil and dirt before any water based cleaning takes place Apply cleaning solution to the floor/wall: This can be by means of sprayer or directly from a container with premixed cleaning solutions

4- Agitation: This is done by means of a rotary cleaning machine or by hand depending on the areas to be cleaned.

5- Rinse: Slurry (Dirt from the floor and cleaning solution mixed together) with our pressurised cleaning equipment. This step allows us to clean areas of your wall or floor that is not reachable with any other form of cleaning (scrubbing)

Sometimes we have to repeat the cleaning process as described above to ensure optimum results.

6- Drying: After the cleaning process has been completed, we will clean up and dry any areas. In cases where stone or tile has a high porosity, drying can take up to 12 hours

7- Impregnation: Application of a top quality impregnator to the quarry tile is crucial as it greatly reduce the porosity of the stone. The impregnator penetrates below the surface of the stone and grout and act as a repellent for any liquid based spills.
